she is getting close
as this is winding down candyland is ramping up she looks like she is gonna get frosty soon
we're about done
what do you go by herk time or the appearance? color of the trich's?
I'm gonna look at the trichs with the loupe tomorrow but I'm kinda going on all of the things you just listed & the fact this is my second grow of this
I must look into these Johnson leds, iv always been a hid man but this plant is looking impressive. Great work !!
she's hanging now
I think timber or rapidled will give as good or better results at a cheaper price the Johnson performance is good I just think there is better options out there
Had a quick look into the leds you mentioned. Ill be hard set finding a supplier in Ireland and our import duty is crazy so getting it shipped over won't be worth the cost. Maybe I will build a little one
Looking forward to the smoke report
I didn't think about your location are kits exempt from the tax?
From experience anything over €100 would get taxed at 23%. Sometimes I can get stuff through without the tax but id say those lights would be caught up. The kits would be the same yeah, although if I purchased the COBs and drivers on their own from china I should be ok with the import duty. Im handy with electrics but id have to source the frame. Id have hotspots all over the place if I tried to weld a frame together lol
aluminum angle & screws & nuts or pop-rivets will work if you're gonna use passive heatsinks some people are buying Chinese cob lights & swapping the chips out for good ones , using the drivers , fans , heatsinks etc. from the Chinese light , the anjeet from amazon has video's on YouTube how it is done
Good thinking, the cost of those lights with import could be cheaper than making up a bracket itself. I must have a look into what the latest COBs everyones running now. I had some priced last year at about €50 each inc shipping.
I have a MarsHydro II 1200w here. Got it two years ago and ran it once start to finish. I had massive growth in veg but the buds just didn't come through in flower. Maybe it was something I done but I couldn't pull a decent yield and I didn't like the colour, way to purple for me. I like the look of your light though and those are some pretty dense buds
just waiting for her to take off running only 3 cobs
It has been raining all week which slowed drying a wee bit but she is almost dry & the next round is in place
so whats the verdict on your grow tents there Herk.
They look super shiny still.
I'm opening these up multiple times a day , been almost a year & still work as good as the day I got them
One tip I found handy with the tents. Get some candle wax or zipper wax for scuba diving suits and run it along the zips. You won’t know yourself after mine tend to get a bit stiff after a while with the high humidity in veg. Little bit of wax does the trick
I use a bar of soap never thought about the stuff for wetsuits
Been busy! The little seedlings are all getting bigger here:
